A composite group of volunteers are painting a nature-inspired mural on the long span of retaining concrete wall built by the DPWH along the highway near the Batu-Ferry Bridge in Barangay Magapuy, Bayombong.
This is one of the activities lined up by the Provincial Government of Nueva Vizcaya (PGNV) in celebration of the 2020 National Arts Month, which is also in sync with the “(P)rotecting the Environment” component of the PRAYERS N FAITH platform of public administration and governance of the present leadership.
This eye-catching and inspiring project is being spearheaded by Ruthie Maye Raña Padilla, MEd, an ardent environmental activist, in tandem with the Tourism Promotion Division of the PGNV, local artists, youth organizations, and other volunteer peoples’ organizations.
Ms. Padilla, a product of UP-Diliman, has been working with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – Philippines in such capacities as Environmental Education Officer and Program Officer since 2008. She is the lone daughter of Governor Carlos M. Padilla and former Governor Ruth Raña Padilla.
WWF-Philippines is the 26th national organization in the WWF network. Since joining the global movement in 1997, its members had successfully been implementing various conservation projects to help protect some of the most biologically-significant ecosystems in Asia.
In the Philippines, the group works to improve Filipino lives by crafting solutions to climate change, providing sustainable livelihood programs, and conserving the country’s richest marine and land habitats.
